exhibit. derrick ward joins us now from freedom plaza with more. derrick, is the protest growing larger this morning? >> it's about the same as it is in the morning when folks wake up here at the plaza. i mean, you've got folks here and you have folks over at mcpherson square as well. it varies throughout the course of the day. sometimes the groups converge. other groups come down. so it's a number that changes but there's always a core presence here as you can see. what happened yesterday was remit of t reminiscent of the points of view. this gentleman wearing this hat, it cost $10. it goes towards water for folk who are suffering or threatened by dehydration. a lot of other causes. we actually did talk to someone at the air and space museum who told us they had not intended to be violent. this person says she was a passivist and it would be a cool irony to get violent about a protest about a drone which they see as a vehicle of violence as well. of course there's the other points of view representing the big money or corporate interests in american politics which they say are sort of

. >> but for us, you know, there are less black films being produced on a yearly basis. therefore there are less jobs. and there's a lot of talent. we're all competing for the same small pool of work. when i get a job, i don't take it for granted. i'm very appreciative and humble by the fact that somebody believes in me and my talent. >> this is what i ask everybody. we like going to the movies. we love spending money. why is hollywood so adverse to making more? >> the one thing i've always heard when i was coming up through the ranks was that selling a black movie overseas is a lot more difficult than just selling a non-race specific film. >> got ya. >> so i think that the answer to that is to create movies that address not just african-american specific situations, but we're people. you know, we are black people, but people is the operative word. i think when you see a movie like jumping the boom, it's something that everybody has a family. it's like my big fat greek wedding. everybody has a family. everybody has a crazy uncle. everybody has a situation just because where two pe

to use somewhere else. the actual stations themselves consist of individual stocks that a bike in gauges into and locked securely into. typically, there is a kiosk, like a atm system, with a touch screen pat, perhaps with a solar map, for power. we will be specifying an rfp here in san francisco. these are essentially portable and modular, so they can be expanded or moved across the street. two guys pull up with a small boom truck, dropped in on site, and it does not require any external power hookup. as i mentioned, there is the kiosk and a map panel. this slide shows an example of the golden gate park in 2009. that is when the station is being lifted off of a truck from one of the industry leaders, coming to demonstrate this from montreal. it is being dropped into place. the bottom slide on the left -- as i mentioned, you can drop them off anywhere within the system. they do not all magically end of where you need them to be, so what the vendor does is rebalance the bicycles. bicycle need to be rebalance to get optimum distribution throughout the system. part of the system is al

cohen for your comments. i think it is spot on. this issue of us not having a process or not a complete one -- to be honest, the process we went through to have this initial proposal was a public process. it initiated from the ethics commission. the ethics commissioners voted on it. it came to our board. it was vetted to our process and had public comment period to behave as though this was not a process that was complete or thoreau is inaccurate. i want to make that point. about process -- even if we voted for this, that does not prevent another public process to figure out how to improve public financing. using process as an excuse to not deal with an impending litigation risk is irresponsible and inaccurate. that is the comment i would like to make. president chiu: supervisor cohen, are you still on the roster? supervisor cohen: i am back on their roster. it is going to be a long night. this is only item 11. in the interest of transparency, when we cast our vote -- pay attention to some quick math. who is up for reelection? where do they vote? do not get me wrong. public fin

. that's what it took. the reason why i wanted to immerse myself in something that a lot of us think we know but really, truly don't is because almost every book begins with a lot of questions. and i had these questions. where did we come from and what did it take for us to get here? what was the world that the seem in this book left? what would propel six million americans to leave the only place that they'd ever known for a place that they'd never seen in hopes that life might be better? what did it take for them to get out? be how did they choose the places that they went? how did they make a way for themselves where they landed? and why didn't they talk about it? and the goal for the book was to have all of us think about and ask ourselves what would we have done had we been in their places, what would we have done? now, the subtitle of the book, the book is, of course, called "the warmth of other suns," and the subtitle is "the epic story of america's great migration." so it would appear that it's about the great migration, but in actuality this book is really about the forebearers

us. i appreciate it and i know the commissioner appreciates it. i want to add onto one thing that the chief said. as to, and this is just my view, i am not speaking on behalf of the commission, as to the option of simply opting out, not only is portland a different city with potential different threats, but the portland police are not members of the jttf. in the suggestion that we could opt out and remain members of the jttf is not accurate. my personal view is that it is important for our officers to be able to -- in order -- if there is a bomb threat, of our officers need to have a timely access for information to the coordinate responses. -- to help coordinate responses. i would counsel people against seeing the portland model as a solution. i think we have a better solution here, which is making sure our officers, when they are assigned to participate in the jttf, do so under our guidelines and consistent with our values and general orders. that is what we have here. i think it is better than what borland has and it has something to do, in large part, because of the pressure which
